Description
This essay provides a brief survey of some suggestive sources and interpretive models for approaching the history of government policy toward the shipping and shipbuilding industries from 1945 to 1970. Documentary sources maintained by the National Archives of Canada and elsewhere are specifically excluded from this discussion.1 For a variety of reasons to be dis- cussed, government agencies conflated their policies toward these industries in the quarter- century following World War II. Interspersed with insights from my preliminary research is an explanation of the peculiar nature of state support for shipping and shipbuilding in the postwar era. Given the contingent nature of my work, this essay is best thought of as an agenda for research.
